Trivia

The film is based on the second book written by Boris Akunin about Erast Fandorin. The first book ("Azazel") was made into a four-episode TV film starring Ilya Noskov as Fandorin. However, in the second film we see another actor playing the main character - Egor Beroev. The State Counsellor (2005), the third film of the series (and the seventh book), introduces yet another actor in the role of Fandorin - Oleg Menshikov. See more »

This movie is OK, but there is an excess of visual effects which makes it look bad
18 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am Russian and I just checked this movie out because i heard so much about it. I find this movie OK. It's not a masterpiece. But it's much better than the other Russian blockbuster Night Watch. However, both of these films have something bad in common and it's the immature obsession of excessive cheesy visual effects. When watching these high budget movies you start thinking the filmmakers forget that it's not the visual effects that make movie a good movie. Those parts in the movie, where they show the dark abyss all the time and then this LOTR style map pops up with a wheel falling down - it just doesn't look good, it looks totally tasteless. I mean the producers spent so much resources to make all those costumes and setups, but when you see something like this, it just ruins the whole point. Bad bad taste. Hopefully, in future Russian filmmakers will grow out this unhealthy obsession and start making great and stylish movies.
